.2 million people infected with hiv here in the united states, jim and about 20% to 25% of those individuals are unaware that they're affected. and what's most concerning is it's those individuals who are affected but unaware. they're responsible for 50 to 70% of the forward transmission. so our objective is to put it out there to make it easier for people to know their history status. >> do you envision a world where someone has unprotected sex, they would go to the drugstore and get this within 72 hours? >> we have spent a lot of time making sure consumers can understand the appropriate use of the product. it's not designed to detect infection immediately after someone is infected. but it's the exactly the same technology that's used in doctors offices and the public health centers. this is the rapid leading history test in the united states and now we're making it available to consumers. >> our show has been focused on hepatitis c. you've got a test for it, but you just don't think -- you talk about it as a billion dollar opportunity, but it's not as big for your company as this one. >> w

there are statements from heads of state. and usually it happens -- in this case it happens around the united nations general assembly session in the fall, beginning of fall. so we see this reaction from the market. it's largely psychological. but then again, at some point this rhetoric becomes routine and the market just doesn't seem amused. but that said -- >> good point, kamran. is this time routine? nothing new between the friction between these countries. but is it different now or the same? >> the rhetoric is not different, and neither is the reaction of the market. so what i see different is that this time around we've had some unusual statements coming from pretty much the who's who of the iranian military hierarchy, basically warning israel of a tough response in the event of an attack on the islamic republic. and that's something that caught our eye at stratforand i think has more significance than the usual rhetoric from the political leadership in both capitals. >> realistically speaking, though, kamran, do you believe that israel has the capability to be able to neutralize any of iran's

leaders who are signaling they're coming to the united states to the u.n. general assembly and they express the desire through their ambassadors to the state department they want to meet with the president. and those options are then put before the national security adviser, and he decides whether or not to make any recommendation to the president on who to meet. well, it's quite clear that either he didn't make any -- either he made recommendations that there's no reason to meet with anybody, or he did make recommendations and the president said, in a, i don i d want to meet them, i'll give a speech and then get to ohio. >> just to follow up on this, i'm thinking of the netanyahu story with israel and iran. one of the key issues, we had professor from harvard law school is whether the united states will truly decisively back up netanyahu and israel militarily. now, with all respect to hillary clinton who is doing a fine job on this stuffy imagine, it's only the president who can make a statement like that.imagine, y the president who can make a statement like that. only th

here in the united states? we've got similar issues, don't we? we have an e more nor we? we have an e more nomous debt l and the debate on what to cut. >> there's always a question of priorities and where you focus your attention. i think the president has made a major effort to reduce the budget deficit and also to invest in the future of the country, just like a corporation in many senses that has too much debt, that it has to put its debt in line with its ability to raise revenues. it also has to invest in its future. the president, i think, is investing in education, infrastructure, many things that will make the country stronger. that's really the goal. it's to have a sound budget policy but also invest in the country's future. i think that's what the president's trying to do. >> but bob, we haven't had a budget in three years. >> well, a lot of programs that he's proposed have not gotten through the congress. that's a big challenge. he's focused on education. he has a very significant proposal on infrastructure development. these are the kind of things that are needed to make us

a stake in and it's tesla here in the united states. they're coming out and saying that they're developing plans, they'll have to slow things down, not going as quickly as originally thought. any concerns about the demand in the future for the electric car given your investment in tesla? >> i think the oem is never in a hype mode as some of the media was as far as electric cars are concerned. this transition will happen. it's a long transition. we're very very beginning. we'll see customers, but of course so far it's a niche and will take time to develop. we will continue to pioneer this market and in 10 or 20 year, electric cars will play a significant role. >> doctor, thank you for joining us live from the paris auto show. joe, becky, andrew, it does not lk like there's a bottom. we're hearing from ceos and they are not seeing a bottom yet. are you looking out at 2015, 2016 before the auto industry can say, okay, at least we see a base here. >> bad news add to go a pile of bad news we've heard recently. phil, thank you very much. and we do want to have you back here soon to talk to us mo

. but here in the united states, with respect to the rally, i'm getting a large number of questions. we're getting a large number of questions about whether or not the stimulus boost from federal reserve easing is what it used to be, so to speak. i would remind people take a look at the last couple of instances, we've had similar measures. we've had similar instances of people wondering whether the fed was -- if i had $1 for every time we talked about the fed being out of bullets, i'd have lots of dollars. and we're going through that again. >> they would all be worth less. >> the previous dollar, yes. >> less than maybe ten years ago. not necessarily less than five years ago. >> shame on you for that populist comment there that you should be cutting taxes in europe. at what point do you think the spanish are going to cut taxes given the situation that they're in? shame on you for appealing to your republican base in such a shameless way. >> btig's clients would be interested to know that i had a republican base, but listen. at the end of the day, there isn't a sort of a one-size-fits-a

in the united states at this point. are we finally off the bottom? >> i think generally we're off the bottom. but it's a tale of many different cities. it depends on the type of real estate, it depends on the market, as you can imagine. the strongest parts of the united states tend to be the coastal cities where people want to live and work. and that is true for residential, for office, commercial, and so forth. and perhaps the very strongest as you've pointed out just a second ago is the top bid for luxury residential and places like manhattan and miami. and it's a foreign driven bit. >> qe3. they're going to hoover up every mortgage known to man, supposedly. isn't that going to help? >> you know, i don't think that qe3 is going to do very much at all, other than keep interest rates low, which benefits all financial assets, right? but there's been no evidence that qe3 is actually going to make its way into the real economy and lift -- >> explain the disconnect, then, between low interest rates which historically led to more home buying and now it's not. why? >> two reasons. one, even though

, the united states. some income producers, growth names and stocks with solid dividend boosts and, of course, some gold. these have been the correct calls to make. i've stuck with this market because i believe europeans are not suicidal. so far so good on that front. at least of late. i believe chinese economy will simply come back by virtue of the fact there's a tremendous urban migration within china. i believe the federal reserve's stance, brought about you by ben bernanke, will serve as a bridge over fiscal cliff and not take us down. the federal stance will take higher paying dividend companies into gems, seeking income, we'll band in bonds of cash poor countries and buy cash rick countries with yields that well exceed treasuries and still own a lot of gold. there's not a nation on earth that doesn't want its currency lower. that reserve currency is gold. also not to toot my own horn too hard, but throughout this period i recognized primecy of some bigger stocks, intel, wells fargo, verizon come to mind or the recognition you must own, not trade, own apple until it's too expensive versu

their friends in southern europe and indeed the economy here in the united states. michelle caruso-cabrera will talk about some of the bad pigs in a minute, but first senior economics reporter steve liesman with the story of some vindicated doves. >> because the new game is called "bad piggies." that's where we're coming from. >> and we're only doing this because the producer jason gawertz made us do this. he said could we think of an app that would apply with today's data and i did. it's called vindicated doves. at least initially here, why is that? because essentially the economic data came in weak. let me show you what the economic data showed. the numbers come in you're looking for 5.6% positive -- or negative. you get minus 13.2 off a prior 3.27%. i think the dove says i don't care i had this one right. gdp took .4 off the prior print right there. midwest manufacturing down negative. p and pending home sales much changed from the prior month from positive to negative. take a look at some of the comments here. vindicated doves. anyone facing doubt about the need forred 23ed's r

contributor. david foon is part of the fastest growing jewish newspaper in the united states. gentlemen, how big of a factor is this tension between iran and israel factored into the price of oil? >> there's no question that today's run-up, marimaria, was direct reaction. we got a leak of some of the speech earlier before the market opened that, in fact, prime minister netanyahu was going to state what this red line was going to be all about. now we know. of course, it comes on the heels of ahmadinejad's speech yesterday. this got right back in the forefront of the traders and the markets' mind here. what it represents, of course, for oil is, you know, the mother of all supply risks here. the strait of hormuz comes into play. the whole region comes into play. obviously, it's almost a mild reaction given what we got here today. we're clearly on a path to something, some confully grags. i do say given that netanyahu says they won't get to that final stage until next summer, we have some time. >> david, what did you think of the red line speech? netanyahu has pressed for this before. the u.s. i
